Singapore: Thoresen Shipping Singapore has announced the acquisition of a seven-year old supramax dry bulk vessel, the M.V. Thor Fearless.
The vessel was built in 2005 by Oshima Shipbuilding in Japan and has a capacity of 54,881dwt.
Ian Claxton, md of Thoresen Shipping, said: “Today’s acquisition is part of the on-going fleet renewal plan we announced last year, and shows we are delivering on our stated objective of acquiring modern and high quality vessels, while remaining responsible in a fragile recovery by not contributing unnecessarily to further tonnage oversupply.”
The purchase brings the Thoresen Shipping owned fleet to 17 vessels, including nine supramaxes. [06/06/13]
